With an ultra sleek sportback body and striking design elements, the A3 Sportback e-tron boasts an elegant and efficient design that is one-of-a-kind, yet unmistakably Audi. With a refreshed look for 2017, the A3 builds on Audi’s established design language, including a unique Singleframe chrome grille, e-tron exterior body-styling elements, and 17-inch alloy wheels in 15-spoke turbine design. A distinctive Tornado line runs just under the side glass – from the headlights to the leading edge of the taillights – giving the impression of movement, even while at a standstill. Audi’s signature LED taillights add to the dramatic statement already made by this vehicle’s impressive body style, but these rear light-emitting diodes are also brighter and more efficient than conventional bulbs, helping to increase visibility to other drivers while lasting longer. Building off these traditional Audi design elements, the A3 steps it up with a range of e-tron specific features, including a battery charging port carefully hidden behind the classic Audi rings within the grille. Not to be outdone, the carefully concealed exhaust outlet sits behind the artistically designed rear diffuser. The e-tron is not only elegant, but functional too. Boasting more than 43.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the rear seats folded down, the A3 e-tron offers drivers a premium driving experience with every day utility. And with the brand new for 2017 sliding panoramic sunroof, you can even work on that tan while driving from A to B.

The sophisticated interior of the A3 Sportback e-tron is underpinned by impressive technology and luxury. It features an e-tron specific instrument display and navigation system that provides a range of driver-orientated information at your fingertips, leather appointed seats, and a multifunction sports steering wheel. New for 2017, the e-tron comes equipped with even more standard features including panoramic sunroof, rearview camera, LED daytime running lights, and standard driver assistance systems such as Audi pre sense basic and Audi pre sense front. Expanded technology offerings include the available Audi virtual cockpit, Audi smartphone interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch, further raising the bar as to what drivers can expect. Specially designed for e-tron, the Audi virtual cockpit includes unique displays such as a power meter screen, which shows the range and consumption figures for both the electricity and gasoline, placed in the driver’s line of vision.
